The baby slept on the pool table. Slept in her portable car seat while the post-Preakness clamor grew ever louder in this theater of the bizarre known as the jockeys' lounge.The baby belonged to jockey Gary Stevens. Her name is Carlie. She is eight weeks old. Frankly, she didn't much care if her daddy had just finished third aboard Casual Lies.The reporters cared -- they kept asking questions. The jockeys cared -- they kept watching replays. But the lounge also is open to families. It makes for a scene unlike any other in professional sports.

Not many horses have won Laurel's Grade II Barbara Fritchie Handicap by winning preps at Penn National Race Course.But when the big money was on the line yesterday, it was Moon Mist, a Canadian ship-in by way of Penn National, that was all alone at the wire.Instead of Moon Mist and her local jockey, Tommy Turner, getting wet and dirty, it was the big name jockeys -- Chris McCarron, Laffit Pincay, Jr. and Chris Antley -- that came back covered with mud.Ten days ago when Moon Mist won a prep for the Barbara Fritchie at Laurel, someone asked the filly's trainer, Wray Lawrence, if he was afraid of all the good horses shipping in for the race.

Winning Derby trainer rides jockeyTrainer Nick Zito isn't going to win any motivational awards for his treatment of jockey Chris Antley, who rode Zito's horse, Strike the Gold, to victory in yesterday's 117th Kentucky Derby.Antley had finished no higher than ninth in two previous Derby rides and has a history of erratic behavior, including suspensions for substance abuse and careless riding."He's a fearless jockey," Zito said. "He has no brains. That's why he's a good jockey. The only thing I can do is kill him if he screws up. I can run him over with my truck."
